All the Presenters at the Krishnamurti Conference

J. Krishnamurti and the Contemporary World Crises International Online Conference took place on February 19-21 and Feb 26-28, 2021 and was a huge success. In this conference, a group of Canadian and Indian scholars, educators, professionals, and students came together to discuss the relevance of J. Krishnamurti’s philosophical ideas in today’s world. The online conference featured twenty-two speakers from a range of disciplines including psychology, law, religious studies, philosophy, and education. The speakers engaged in panel discussions and question/answer sessions with attendees in six two-hour sessions throughout the two weekends of the conference. It brought together a vast number of like-minded individuals, resulting in a cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary community of people concerned with societal and individual betterment, and who have seen how the wisdom of J. Krishnamurti may further those goals in their own unique contexts. The conference was organized by Dr. Ashwani Kumar (Program Director) of Mount Saint Vincent University in collaboration with Dr. Nayha Acharya (Team Member) of the Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, with the support of the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute’s Program Development Grant.
